Me & Devil Boy
Why is the fourth floor forbidden…
Bo lives in a tiny attic room in an orphanage, locked away by cruel Sister Slade who is convinced that his green-glowing eye means he must be possessed by the Devil. His only friend is a stuffed octopus named Regina, and his only hobby is drawing beautiful murals on the walls.
Curious, pin-bright Bailey Winks is an orphan who dreams of starting a new life somewhere after she’s stolen enough money. When her aunt drops her off at Sister Slade’s Home for Orphans, she doesn’t plan to stay long. A pick-pocket here, a pick-pocket there, and she’ll have enough money saved up to run away. But once she learns about Bo, the mysterious devil-possessed boy living on the forbidden fourth floor of the orphanage, she puts her escape plans on hold. She wants to meet the Devil Boy in the flesh.
But her secret meetings with Bo are fraught with danger—and after a murder is blamed on him, everyone in the home is on high alert that the Devil Boy will get them next. Bailey knows there’s a murderer in the home, but it’s not Bo. And it’s up to Bailey to save Bo and her herself before it’s too late for the both of them.
